Wang Yongchen is an environmental journalist, organizer, poet and founder of the Green Earth Volunteers in China. She is spearheading a public campaign to save the Nu River, which is one of China’s last free-flowing rivers, flowing from the Tibetan Plateau into Burma and Thailand. Wang uses multimedia to engage fellow journalists, document the destruction of river ecosystems, organize communities and engage with government officials to put halt to destructive projects on rivers. Wang Yongchen is, as she says, part of nature and doing what everyone should be doing. Photo credit: International Rivers
